    I worked at University of Hertfordshire full-time

    Pros

    A nice place to work and many opportunities available if you want to progress within IT services at University of Hertfordhsire. Payment is above average in IT services.

    Not many cons as it is like other universities in regards with bonuses and the other benefits, so should not expect anything more than your salary.

    Advice to Management

    Should have more connections to lower grades staff and should hear them, also engage them more in decision makings.

    I have been working at University of Hertfordshire part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very dedicated and friendly staff always willing to help

    Cons

    Hugely disorganised with no career path. Appointments are very little to do with dedication or talent and are all about expediency.

    Advice to Management

    nobody is falling for 'teaching excellence framework' - most people know that what it really means is - 'awarding the top brass, huge salaries and perks off the backs of crippling student debt'.
